Betty's Big Day

Thursday, Jan 10th was a big night for Betty and the City of Charlottesville.

Betty supporters from all around Charlottesville met at South Street to talk green, enjoy some local brew, and meet other e-conscious members of this community.

Mayor Dave Norris said that Charlottesvile is fast-becoming recognized throughout the state for our innovative (green rooftop on the city council building, for example) and far-reaching green initiatives (recycling goal of 50%!).

Check out more of what the city is doing at their new green page (brought to you by the Citizens Committee for Environmental Sustainability).

Matt Renic and WCAV Channel 19 showed up to find out what all the Betty Buzz is about! See the segment here.

Now that the launch is over, it's time to get back to work: Betty will continue to make it easy and fun for people to go green. Betty's future plans are a dining guide for Charlottesvillians and possible panel discussion or workshops. But she cannot do it without the help of donations.

If you find Betty's information useful, please donate.

Thanks all,
